– Bajaj Pulsar 250 is likely to be powered by KTM Duke 250’s 248.76cc, single-cylinder petrol engine.

Homegrown automaker, Bajaj is working on the next-generation Pulsar range. It is confirmed that the company will launch a 250cc Pulsar, which will be the flagship model in its range. The new Bajaj Pulsar range will come with BSVI compliant engines and are likely to go on sale in early 2020. The Bajaj Pulsar 250 is also expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2020 and will be equipped with fuel injection, monoshock and ABS as standard.
The next Pulsar range platform is reportedly to be versatile enough to accommodate engines ranging from 150cc to 250cc. And, this is the reason behind the consideration for a more powerful Pulsar 250. Some media reports claim that the company could use the modified version of the KTM Duke 250’s platform for this Pulsar. Not just platform, the upcoming Pulsar 250 will share the engine with the Austrian’s sibling. This engine will be tuned for better fuel efficiency.
Design of the new Bajaj Pulsar 250 will come with an evolved version of the NS200’s design. The model will have modern features like all-digital instrument console, ABS, split seats and slipper clutch. Bajaj currently sells the Pulsar 135, 150, 180 and 220, but the company will retain the 150cc and 220cc variants as they continue to sell in good numbers. The 135cc and 180cc variants are likely to be discontinued. Interestingly, the company might also discontinue the 200cc Pulsars and could launch the RS 250 and NS 250 in the market.
